    Go wdemirdonder!!In reply to your request for advice I also left school with not a clue as to what I wanted to do.  So I found a full-time position in a cafe on fairly dismal money but it kept me busy and I had an income coming in.  When I ended up buying my first property I made sure I could afford the payments even if I was unemployed (the o…[Read more]

  • lucylu replied to the topic Incompetent property managers in the forum General Property 17 years, 11 months ago

    Thanks for all the advice everyone – I feel a lot more confident on knowing what to ask for now. Although the idea of self managing sounds enormously appealing; over the weekend was toying with the idea of setting up a website where people with self-managed IP could access advice, leasing forms etc as from speaking to other landlords in my…[Read more]

    Hi Callander thanks heaps for the advice – the property in question is in the Queanbeyan area (next to Canberra) and PM was with a major agency which is why I was surprised the service was so appalling. Interviewing other landlords is a fantastic idea I never thought of.

    The trouble with the property management in some of these smaller towns is…[Read more]
